Colours That Will Help You Sell Your House

Colour is all around us and can greatly impact our moods, emotions and even behaviours. Knowing this, you should consider home staging your home in consequence, as you want to influence potential buyers in a positive way. You would be surprised to see that paint can have a big impact on visitors, as long as you choose the right colours wisely.

1. Kitchen

Homes with blue kitchens, especially soft gray-blue, tend to add value to the house while yellow usually decreases the average selling price. In fact, across the board, light blue is the number one colour that can significantly increase the value of your house. However, don’t go crazy by painting every wall of your property the same colour. In fact, darker shades suit some spaces better such as the dining room and are perfect to create an elegant, yet cozy feeling.

2. Bathroom

Pale blue is the best-selling hue for the washroom as it is often associated with freshness and cleanness. On the other hand, although white may seem like a good idea, be careful as it can easily bland your bathroom. Try to brighten up the decor with some accessories.


3. Bedroom
